Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat

Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Think about how you or the people you work with approach the creation of a blended learning lesson plan. The first steps of coming up with and flushing out your initial idea. Then, scouring the web to find safe, factually accurate sites that are not blocked by your school filters and checking the fine print …

 

This method of teaching does require a certain amount of bravery. There is a very real chance that when a student asks you a question (How do I add media? How do I change the font? How do I import pictures? etc. etc.) you will have to say the dreaded “I don’t know”. But the neat thing is, your students are ok with this. You’re all learning as you go. More often than not another child in the class will be using the same site or will have at least used it before. If a classmate knows the answer, they can step into the role of teacher – from which much confidence is gained and leadership skills are learned.


Even the most reserved kid really enjoys teaching their teacher a trick or two. If no one knows the answer, they can collaborate to find the solution; an activity that provides important life skills with many real-world applications. All while leaving the initiative, process development and ownership of the learning itself right where it belongs, in the hands of the learners.


Gust MEES: I started with it in 2002 already and was a pioneer in my country, BUT I got BEST results! Make sure to work TOGETHER as a TEAM with the students, learners, create ALSO some groups where the BEST work together with the weakest. YOU will love it later and YOU will miss it as it gives YOU a direct feedback of WHAT THEY learned and YOU adjust on demand and necessity... WHEN the BEST feel boring, give THEM a special task to motivate THEM ;) ===> Adjust <===.


Concerning the questions from the students, please check my advice here:

I am not sure what is being suggested is putting students in charge. It is more about a complicated conversation between teachers and students about the subject matter. There is an in-between space where teachers and students meet.

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
For too long, too many of us have been entranced by heroes. Perhaps it's our desire to not have to do the hard work, to rely on someone else to figure things out. But perhaps it's time for us to face the truth of our situation -- that we're all in this together, that we all have a voice -- and figure out how to mobilize the hearts and minds of everyone in our workplaces and communities.

Via Anne Leong, Wise Leader™, Roy Sheneman, PhD

A great question is posed in the article. Why do we continue to hope for heroes to emerge? I would add, "Why do we settle for managers and false prophets?"

Via Christine Heine, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I cringe with the contemporary notion about what a life-long learner is. The term has been appropriated into a neo-liberal agenda to mean we are learning what the boss says we should. Having said this, the article makes valuable points. For example, reading and setting aside a fund for new books are excellent ideas. Reaching out to others who might add to who you are is also another good idea.

One Lesson at a Time: 10 Rhetorical Questions to Stop Using in the Classroom

One Lesson at a Time: 10 Rhetorical Questions to Stop Using in the Classroom | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

A little over a year ago, I got caught in my own question.

"So, you're going to stay here while the rest of us go to lunch?" I asked a little nugget who was parked underneath a table, refusing to move.

"YES."

Well. Shoot.

My question set both of us up for failure in that moment. To me, it meant "get up". To that student, it meant that staying under the table while we go to lunch was an option - and it wasn't. It backed both of us into a corner (or under a table?). That moment stuck with me. I became far more aware of just how often I was using rhetorical questioning in my classroom. I started to notice other teachers using rhetorical questioning.

There should be alternative paths to teaching for individuals with college degrees, especially in math, science & technical skill areas.  The caveat is that these job candidates must pass some sort of content area test, showcase their knowledge of the curriculum development & student assessment processes and demonstrate classroom management skills during the hiring process. Frankly, I don't believe classroom management skills are a given without hours upon hours of observation and practice. And I also agree that the for-profit model, as in charter school operations, doesn't fare very well.  However, the independent schools have used "content specialists" with college degrees for decades with enormous success.  If the higher education schools consistently provided top-shelf teacher candidates, the issue would dissolve all by itself.

How Dyslexia Affects the Curriculum | DyslexiaHelp at the University of Michigan | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

Virtually every subject requires some reading and/or writing. Therefore, it is not a surprise that dyslexia can affect learning in all subject areas. Underlying deficits in accessing written text, reading fluency, spelling, written expression, organizing, following written directions, sequencing, using working memory (needed for problem solving), and visual processing (especially critical for worksheets, textbooks, and tests) can affect learning in different subjects in different ways.

As a consequence of their reading difficulties, students with dyslexia are forced to compensate for their weaknesses by following their peers, verbally processing information, relying on rote memorization, and using hands-on/experiential learning contexts.

When I read an article like this I wonder why we won't simply change the way we assess and evaluate all our students--instead of trying to accommodate dyslexics. Grading hurts all kids--including the A students!--Lou

 

Excerpt:

 

"...Specific pitfalls related to each subject area are summarized below. (Note: Your student may not exhibit all of these difficulties.) A student with dyslexia may have difficulty in:

Science – using a systematic step-by-step approach to the experimental method; decoding and learning novel vocabulary (particularly multisyllabic words); navigating a textbook; identifying key points or what is most important; reading fluency; or writing and spelling for homework, projects, and tests. Difficulty with word retrieval and spelling may confound students on recall tests.Math – learning math terminology, symbols, and directionality when solving a problem; breaking apart multi-step written directions; conceptualizing abstract concepts; estimating; evaluating answers; or using a systematic step-by-step approach.History/Social Studies – transposing dates or maps; decoding and learning novel vocabulary (particularly multisyllabic words); navigating a textbook; identifying key points or what is most important; reading fluently; or writing and spelling for homework, projects, and tests. Difficulty with word retrieval and spelling may confound students on recall tests.Band/Choir – reading music or following multistep directions.Gym – following oral directions; following written directions and diagrams; learning specific vocabulary if they do not have prior learning or experience with it; using directionality; or remembering directions.Art – following step-by-step, sequential directions to complete a project; following diagrams; following oral directions; or keeping organized.Foreign Languages – spelling; learning vocabulary; knowing where to divide or segment words that are presented auditorily; implicitly learning grammatical rules; or fluently reading.
